August 2019 Faith Program Director Report

Our goal is to strengthen men and their families in the Catholic faith. Formation in our faith goes beyond mere facts or religious practice to an authentic connection with a loving God and his son Jesus Christ. Programs in this category are designed to draw us closer to God and the Church in a tangible and meaningful way.

Many Councils may have taken a ‘little break’ over the last couple of months.

You’re rejuvenated & ready to get back into the good works (programs & activities) that you do in and for your Parish and communities.

2018/2019 was our first full Columbian year using the new Faith in Action programs model. In the Faith category, programs require planning & preparation to fully meet the criteria set out in the guide and, probably more so, to get the “most” out of the programs.

I would suggest/encourage each Council to –

  • Select/appoint/volunteer a member to be your Council Faith Director (CFD)
  • In consultation with the GK & CFD try to have a member lead each of the eight programs
  • Meet with your Pastor/Chaplain for his input to plan and put into action the program(s)

This will lessen the workload on just 1 or 2 individual members.

Have a great year! Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance to you.
